Austria again!

Well, fourteen hours between sleepers from and to Warsaw barely counts as a visit, but I was happy anyway. Spanish Riding School again, though I was a little disappointed that they didn't, as they did last time I was at the morning exercise, throw in a few of the top horses at the end and give us some of the high school movements.

Visiting the Hofburg a la my little sister (the imperial apartments, the Sisi museum (Franz! Sisi! Franz! Sisi!) and the silver collection in under an hour), and a more leisurely examination of the carriages at the Schonbrunn.

One of my favourite places on the planet: the Stephansdom. The kneelers in the Blessed Sacrament chapel should be the model for such places everywhere. I love this church.
